    Kills tape worm + how to give a pill

    By Bevy on Jun 18, 2020

    Working in cat rescue years ago, this was my preferred wormer. For tapeworm, a second dose is needed in 2 weeks to kill any new hatched eggs! Be sure to read the label for correct dosing. My best luck for giving pills? Use a dropper to give cat a bit of water to moisten their throat. Have pill ready Working in cat rescue years ago, this was my preferred wormer. For tapeworm, a second dose is needed in 2 weeks to kill any new hatched eggs! Be sure to read the label for correct dosing. My best luck for giving pills? Use a dropper to give cat a bit of water to moisten their throat. Have pill ready, coated with butter! After giving pill, give a bit more water via dropper and love / praise kitty for being sooooo good! :-) Give kitty a small amount of watered down soft food as a treat and to prevent stomach upset or vomiting. Good luck. … more

    Drontal - major side effects

    By 2Cats on Mar 13, 2020

    Our kittens had severe side effects to this medicine 2 nights in a row and we had to stop it. The kittens had such serious eye reactions to the drug they must not have been able to even see well for hours and hours. They couldn’t recognize each other and would hiss and were scared of each other when Our kittens had severe side effects to this medicine 2 nights in a row and we had to stop it. The kittens had such serious eye reactions to the drug they must not have been able to even see well for hours and hours. They couldn’t recognize each other and would hiss and were scared of each other when they would walk into a room. A weird white membrane formed over 1/2 their eyes. Like a milky colored film. Their eyes also would roll back. They acted totally drugged out for hours. One of them vomited and foamed are the mouth hours after they had the pill administered. They were obviously nauseous and couldn’t eat or drink til the next day. But the scariest effect was the eye membrane and the psychotic episode of just staring into space, moving super slowly and drugged, not being able to really see. … more

    Best de-wormer for cats

    By on

    Much cheaper than picking up at the vet. Easy to order -- added it to shopping cart and Chewy contacted the vet for the prescription and shipped quickly. This gets rid of tapeworms and other common ones in one dose.

    A winner!!!

    My cat family was not responding to the unusual “flea & worm medication “ I’ve used for several years. I contacted Chewys Vet office with my concerns and they suggested Drontal. It was a great choice and it Works.

    I put in the wrong animal. It was my mistake. And chewy staff worked with me and my vet to fix my mistake. Super helpful. Did the pills work?? I think so. But still. 5 stars.

    Finally some relief for my cats!

    By on

    I’m not crazy about having to either shove this down their poor throats or potentially waste a tablet crushing it over their food, but from what I’ve seen, it works! I’ve given it to two outdoor cats. One has been quite malnourished in appearance and I had to force half a tablet down her throat. Two days later, her coat is soft and shiny and her eyes are clear. She isn’t coughing or constantly sneezing now either! My other kitty took a whole tablet in a pill pocket. While she already had a soft coat and clear eyes, I can tell she has so much more energy and her tummy bloat has disappeared. So while I haven’t witnessed any worms exiting their behinds, I trust that it is helping.

Just be forewarned that these pills have a bitter taste and your kitty may put up a fuss when administering, but they do work and you’ll be so glad you bought them! … more

    Brought in a feral cat from the cold. She couldn't stop eating. Gave her a Drontal and now she's eating normally. Thanks, Drontal. Thanks, Chewy.

    needs flavoring

    By on

    crushed and mixed in food our cats always devour, however they ate a few bits, and would not finish their food, as the pills obviously taste bad. A waste of over $30., and my cats are not wormed!!! 1 star is for the product. Chewy gets 5 star for obtaining the RX from my vet and quick service.

    I bought the Babble Ball and I don’t see how the dog can carry it. Let alone get a good taste of something. Thank you!
